Sony DCR-DVD108 Camcorder

Looking for an entry-level camcorder are you? Then the Sony DCR-DVD 108 camcorder is the right one for you. At least that is what I feel after using it for almost a month now.

In fact I am not to be blamed for falling in love with this piece of gadgetry. Of course, it may lack frills, offering only manual controls and 640x480 stills. The Sony DCR-DVD108’s slender upright design can save a lot of space in the camera bag.

Its lens has a filter diameter of 30mm. It also has a 40x optical zoom lens that offers a focal length of 1.9mm-76mm (36mm-1440mm when converted to 35mm for both movies and stills). You will find the lens cover switch to the bottom left of the lens.

The lens cover looks lustrous with its milled black finish. Below the lens you will find the remote sensor, followed by a rigid plastic port cover housing the AV out terminal. A rugged plastic strip secures the port cover.

This camcorder certainly beats the price barrier when looks and functionalities are concerned. It has cool features, even better looks and it fits snugly into my hand.

The Sony DCR-DVD108 Camcorder is a dependable modern day toy to carry and flaunt on my holiday. It sure beats my digital camera as it can shoot pictures too.

Google Writer - If Wishes Were Horses!

I was reading this article about "Google Writer" and salivating all the way down the page. What a great idea, would writing, nay, blogging, be the same again? And when one is thinking this thingammajig "Google Writer" would be a beauti-cool application to have, um, comes the tag "April Fool's Day".

Oh, what a let down! I could punch the google writer who wrote this article for the silly joke. Well, actually, I wish the Googlies would actually work on some thing like the
Google Writer, would have made blogging much more fun. But at Google, guess, wishes aren't horses!

Nokia 6120 - Affordably Cool!

Nokia 6120 features a good internet connectivity at HSDPA (3.5G) connectivity. So, are you a mobile Internet freak with a need for speed? Then this is the handset you should check out. It has a lot going for it. It's light, thin and features Nokia's S60 platform, so you can run a variety of useful software on it. The Nokia 6120's HSDPA connectivity means you can browse the Web, download music or pictures and stream online content fast In addition there's a VGA camera on the front for making video calls. There's a 2-megapixel camera on the back that may not take the best resolution pictures ever, but it will do for daily use. This phone has a very low price tag, and is quite easy on the pocket, which when compared to the price of Nokia's flagship model, the N95, is quite a bargain. If you're looking for a cheap all-rounder that gives you fast Internet access, go for the 6120.

Just a little suggestion:

How about giving bluetooth connectivity so that one can do away with wires and stuff like that?

That a blog backlash in blogosphere - the world this blog belongs to can sting is proved by this incident "Blog Backlash Can Sting — Ask Dell - The Visible Enterprise."

Quoted from the article in, "IdeaStorm notwithstanding — and despite Michael Dell christening the company’s efforts to reorganize “Dell 2.0″ — the company appears to be struggling with the concept of social networking.

Apple TV Is Here

What if you have something that can connect all the movies videos you downloaded on to your television? Fantastic! Because you use your computer as the center of your digital and wired life, but television is the center of your entertainment life. But imagine having to sit before your computer, download a movie and then watching it sitting five inches away from the screen.

Sure, if you would like to put up your feet, lean back on the sofa, even eat popcorn and watch a movie or video, its now possible with Apple TV. You can wirelessly transfer the downloaded movie to your television using Apple TV. And it is both Apple Mac and PC compatible.

Suppose you’ve downloaded Ocean’s Thirteen from iTunes. Instead of seeing it on your computer, wirelessly send the flick to Apple TV. Then pull up a seat, put up your feet, and see your movie on your television using Apple TV.

This device can put your iTunes library — movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts right there on your TV. Your digital photos appear in high definition, so you can put on a big-screen slideshow.

This is an old Malayalam aphorism which mean "If what you ask isn't granted you waste a few words. If you are granted your wish then you get a mountain (meaning whatever you ask)." This means do not hesitate to ask. Or, as the Bible says, "Ask and ye shall receive."

A good review of Nikon Coolpix L3 camera

A very good page about my favorite brand of camera, the Coolpix L3. It gives me 5.1 megapixels and 3 x optical zoom. It has video too, and unlike the earlier model I had has sound too. I have shot a few videos and they look good. What I do is upload to picasa and then picasa has a way of transferring my pictures to the picasaweb album.

My Huawei Cell Phone

I bought a Huawei 3G CDMA phone really cheap at Kurla, Mumbai. It is a basic model and has an FM radio to boot. I always wanted a radio, so that I can listen to songs on the way to work.

This phone has a good backup memory, it's cell also lasts longer than the ones I used earlier, has a cool display and catches all my local FM stations.

Something to rave about since I bought it for just Indian Rupees 1750. If you are interested in lyrics of Hindi songs you can find them here.

What is Skype?

I have often came across the word Skype too many times and wondered what it must be. Have you? Then here is a primer, courtesy, Wikipedia.

"Skype is a peer-to-peer Internet telephony network founded by the entrepreneurs Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, also founders of the file sharing application Kazaa. It competes against existing open VoIP protocols such as SIP, IAX, and H.323. The Skype Group, acquired by eBay in October 2005, is headquartered in Luxembourg, with offices in London, Tallinn and Prague.

"Skype has experienced rapid growth in both popular usage and software development since launch, both of its free and its paid services. The Skype communications system is notable for its broad range of features, including free voice and video conferencing, its ability to use peer to peer (decentralized) technology to overcome common firewall and NAT (Network address translation) problems, and its extreme countermeasures against reverse engineering of the software or protocol."

Value-added services for telecommunications

Telecommunications is booming in India and one company that is making waves in the telecom sphere is This value added service provider has a network infrastructure for delivering innovative VAS network services, business logic, information and entertainment content. Take a look.

G2Bay, monetize your information!

Here's a friend networking and sharing site that believes in social networking and that information is money and wants its members to benefit when they give out information on the net. They have many ways of monetizing the information we give away to websites and portals for free.

The site also is for serious networkers who would like to earn money. So, no fake, fraud, spam profiles here. And that's a good thing in the networked world where, um, you go and see these arresting face, only to discover that the profile is fake, the photograph belongs to that of some supermodel.

Ergo, is it goodbye to all that?
